Meet FACE Success Story Zeus!

This handsome fellow is a 9 month old Siberian Husky pup named Zeus.  Zeus and his human dad were unfortunately involved in a car accident recently.  The car was totaled but luckily Zeus’s dad was unhurt.

Zeus initially seemed fine too, although he was tossed about a little in the back seat.  It was only later at home that he began to show signs that he was unwell.  His veterinarian diagnosed Zeus with intussusception, a condition where one segment of the intestines slides (or “telescopes”) into another.

Zeus required surgery to fix his urgent medical problem, and the combination of an unexpected car accident and a veterinary emergency were financially difficult for his family to handle.

With the help of a grant from FACE, Zeus was able to get the surgery he needed and is now back at home recovering with his family!

 

Meet FACE Success Story Thor!

Poor little Thor is a 7 month old Yorkie who suffered a fall while home alone one day and fractured two of his delicate legs.

Thor’s parents were desperate to come up with the funds for the surgery needed to repair his legs.  They began a fundraising campaign but were unable to raise enough.  Thor’s vet, California Veterinary Specialists, referred Thor’s parents to FACE.

With a financial grant, we were able to cover the remaining amount needed for Thor’s critical surgery.  Please join us in wishing sweet Thor a speedy recovery!

 

Meet FACE Success Story Goober!

This sweet pup enjoying a seaside adventure is a 9 year old Corgi named Goober.  Goober loves a good meal, so his mom was concerned when he suddenly stopped eating.

Our friends at Morena Pet Hospital discovered that Goober had a foreign object lodged in his throat.  Foreign body obstruction is a common veterinary emergency in dogs.

Goober needed surgery, but his mom is on a limited disability income.  Morena referred her to FACE, and she applied for a grant for financial assistance.

We were able to make a pledge towards Goober’s care and wish Goober and his mom many more happy days at the beach!
